The Levitt Pavilion Dayton is in the heart of downtown Dayton, located on South Main Street between Fourth and Fifth Streets in the space previously known as Dave Hall Plaza. Just blocks from both Riverscape and the Oregon District, it’s easy to include live music in your time downtown.
The below rules apply to our 50 FREE concerts every summer. Rules may differ for benefit concerts, rentals, and City Festivals.
There are multiple parking garages around the Levitt Dayton and all street parking is free on weekends and after 6 PM on weekdays!
What to Bring
To make the most of your evening at the Levitt Pavilion Dayton, bring a fun attitude, a lawn chair or blanket for relaxing, snacks or a picnic dinner (BYOB—no glass allowed). You might also want a hat, sunscreen, bug spray or other protection from Mother Nature. If it looks like rain, you might want a poncho or small umbrella. Don’t forget the most important thing—your family and friends for sharing the fun, the music, and most of all, the magic!
Levitt Pavilion Dayton has totally open seating on the lawn. You choose where you want to enjoy the concert, just bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.
All of the parking lots around the Levitt Pavilion Dayton have designated handicapped parking. Ramps lead to the lawn on the Jefferson Street side of the park. All four entrances are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs can be parked all along the sidewalks or on the lawn.
All of the Levitt’s concerts are family friendly, and the Levitt lawn is a great place for the kids! Please be responsible for your children, and make sure they don’t disturb the people around you who are trying to enjoy the concert. Please also stop your kids from littering, interfering with any of the park’s beautiful plants, and for their safety, please don’t let them climb on or around the large speakers at the front of the stage.
Your furry family members can come to the concert, but they must be on a leash and under your control at all times, well behaved, not aggressive or disruptive, and you must clean up after them. If a dog is aggressive or disruptive and spoils the concert experience for others, you will be asked to come back to enjoy a concert another time. Please also consider if the concert volume is appropriate for your dog’s sensitive ears.
There is no smoking on the Levitt Pavilion Dayton lawn, including e-cigarettes or vapor cigarettes.
Dayton’s summer weather is unpredictable, and Levitt Pavilion Dayton concerts may be canceled at the last minute due to lightning or bad weather. The first place to check on a concert’s status is on our website LevittDayton.org. Canceled concerts and weather updates also are posted on the Levitt Pavilion Dayton’s Facebook page and Twitter.
Levitt Pavilion Dayton is a city park and falls under the policies of the City of Dayton’s Parks & Recreation Department. For the enjoyment of all our Levitt Pavilion Dayton visitors who are there for a pleasant evening of music under the stars, please observe these rules during your visit.
